Chama, NM

Jeff got here about 2:30 am local time, after a tough 6+ hour pull that took us over the continental divide. Our highest elevation was more than 8000 feet.

It was very windy and a little cold on top. Jeff, of course, took it all in his usual stride, with humor and class. We in his crew have come to better appreciate and respect the kind of extraordinary person that he is.

Here's an example from Monday night: It was very cold in the wee hours coming thru the desert towards Monument Valley. Jeff put on arm warmers, then a vest, then tights, then his jacket, then more socks and ear covers. At one point, he says," It's cold, but it's a dry cold."
